Worrisome Impact


Give AP writer Richard Ostling (re: the AP story on Catholics previously mentioned) credit. Most readers felt invited to worry about the impact on the Court of so many Catholics justices. Savvy readers got more out of it. Sorry experiences with William Brennan and Tony Kennedy make them worry about a different impact: that of the Court upon a justice’s Catholicism.
